Paediatric tuberculosis treatment


Unitaid is seeking to speed up adoption of treatments and diagnostic tools better suited to children with TB. Nearly 575 children die each day from TB.

Growing Up A Healthy Boy with Effective TB Treatment In La Unión, El Salvador, 4-year-old Lito just completed his treatment for tuberculosis. Because children in impoverished families often don’t have access to good nutrition, Lito also received dietary supplements to help speed up recovery. When he grows up, he wants to become a police officer. Image: John Rae / The Global Fund
